ABSTRACT
The author discusses the rationale of charisma. The first explanation deals with the people's desire to identify with the leaders. He explains that people tend to follow or be influenced by those they can relate with. He describes a charismatic leader as the one who adds the quality of magnetism or intrigue to the group by being a bit mysterious, which is called mystique, or a transformational quality that affects one's internal state.
